Food safety technologies, such as sensors, can signal when the temperature increases above safe holding temperatures and swiftly address the issue without throwing out a freezer full of food.
Fremont, CA: Food safety is an essential component of our consumption cycle since it helps to prevent human harm. If proper measures for food safety are followed, they will be the key to fostering improved health. When reasonable precautions are taken, they can also help to protect the public from foodborne illnesses and promote food security.
Here are some key food safety trends to keep an eye on.
Sensors installed in coolers, freezers, or other food storage spaces are increasingly necessary for many organisations. Food safety technologies, such as sensors, can signal when the temperature increases above safe holding temperatures and swiftly address the issue without throwing out a freezer full of food. This type of continual monitoring helps maintain food safety in ways that manual tests cannot.
While it is tempting to think of food safety technology in terms of gadgets or solutions that directly monitor food or sanitise surfaces, training in suitable food safety methods can be vital. Firms now provide staff with bite-sized reminders of what they should be doing to keep people safe, thanks to the advent of e-learning approaches such as microlearning. Employees only need a minute to acquire food safety refreshers because microlearning is quick and easy to administer.
Compliance with internal and external food safety audits can be complex, but it doesn't have to be dreadful. One of the simplest ways to accomplish this is to move audits from spreadsheets to a platform designed to carry out and track food safety requirements. Food safety technologies, such as food safety software or cloud-based apps, can assist with automatically generating hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP) logs, detecting employee fraud, and advising corrective actions.
